THE timing could be just right for an Asean Basketball League comeback for Evan Brock after getting released by Barako Bull in the PBA.
The Westports Malaysia Dragons are said to be mulling an import change just before the deadline, while the San Miguel Beermen are also not discounting the possibility of hiring Brock, according to a source.
Marcus Hubbard and Gavin Edwards are the current imports of the Dragons.
Barako Bull recently replaced Brock with former Los Angeles Laker DJ Mbenga after averaging 21.1 points, 16 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.6 blocks in 11 games with the Energy Cola in the Commissioner’s Cup.
ABL teams have until April 7 to change their imports.
Brock is no stranger to the ABL, having played and won the crown with Indonesia Warriors last season. The Warriors beat the Beermen in the championship series in three games.
The Beermen currently have solid imports in Brian Williams and former Globalport reinforcement Justin Williams.
Meanwhile, the Dragons, who are currently in third place behind the Warriors and the Beermen, are said to be keen on making an import change before the deadline.
Gabe Freeman, who had also been released by the San Miguel Beermen in the ABL, confirmed that the Dragons have already sent him feelers after his supposed stint with Petron in the PBA fell through.
